Armed Citizen Interrupts Burglary In Connecticut

posted on June 27, 2015

A burglar who saw an empty home as an invitation was surprised when the homeowner showed up to confront him. The Windsor Locks, Conn., resident was away last Friday night when he received a call around 10 p.m. informing him that someone was attempting to break into his house. After rushing home and seeing that his garage window had been forced open, the resident found the intruder still on the premises. During the ensuing struggle, the homeowner pulled out his handgun and fired one shot at the burglar, who quickly fled in the direction of a nearby neighborhood.

Though witnesses in that neighborhood reported seeing a white Chevy sedan with no tags leaving the area at high speeds, the suspect remains at large, and it is unknown whether he was injured in the fracas. The homeowner was unharmed.
